American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Young Fellows Leadership Circle

In honor of the College’s Centennial, the American College of Surgeons (ACS)  Foundation is launching a new donor recognition program exclusively for Young Fellows of the College—the Young Fellows Leadership Circle.

This gives Young Fellows the opportunity to be a part of the College’s philanthropic programs with a lower threshold of giving—your loyalty in supporting the College is more important than the size of your gift! 

Your gift will benefit the Sustaining Fund, which supports the area of greatest need or opportunity to ensure the continued level of excellence provided by the College’s programs and initiatives. 

Benefits include:

  • Recognition in the Foundation Annual Report, Foundation website, and donor newsletter
  • Access to the Foundation Hospitality Suite during Clinical Congress
  • Networking opportunities with ACS Foundation Board of Directors
  • Development of a giving record for membership in the Fellows Leadership Society
  • Pride in giving back to the surgical profession

The minimum donation is $200 per year until YFA exit at age 46. These major donor benefits then increase to an annual gift of $1,000 through the Fellows Leadership Society
